Good voltage for E2160 @ 3.0GHz

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've tried all sorts of things and I can't get my CPU stable under ORTHOS to 3.0GHz @ a vCore of less than 1.45625v. In other words, my first stable or kinda stable was 2 hours with vCore of 1.4565. Is this a good voltage for the E2160 @ 3.0GHz?

THanks!

Hello, Your going to want to stay below 1.5V and keep a close eye on your temps under load. I personally don't like to see my temps go much higher than 57C for every day use. But, that differs from person to person. Also, as I recall my e2160's Vcore @ 3Ghz sounds similar to yours. My cpu was not one of the greatest over clockers. But, I was happy with the final results. Good luck!

Thanks for the input. Yeah I want to stay below 1.5V and since I needed like 1.475V for 3.0GHz (and I didn't even get it stable ) I'm gonna stay at 2.9GHz for which I only need 1.4V and I get pretty good temps idling at 23-26C and load (ORTHOS) ranging from 45-49C max 50C.

On average, 1.4-1.425 BIOS voltage should be enough for a M0 stepping E2160 at 3 Ghz.

It is amazing what a huge different between these recent and old E2xxx. I had a E2160 before. It only needed 1.34 at 3.0G.

With my E2180, I'm on stock voltages @ 3.0ghz. It does take 1.45 to be stable @ 3.6ghz and temps are outrageously high, so I'll leave it at stock Vcore (for the time being)

Yeah man seems like they're making them less stable, or I got that ocassional unlukcy CPU or mobo in this case...

Theres just no way I could hit 3.0Ghz on even 1.4v

BTW, yeah I have the M0 revision.

I needed 1.475v to be stable under ORTHOS (8 hours)

@ NrGx, is the voltage on your E2160 (1.475) the one on your BIOS or the one that is shown in Windows (after vDroop)?
